tidal quality setting

Postby ricko01 » Tue Jan 31, 2017 5:17 am

Does the Tidal quality setting (i'm a HI-FI subscriber) matter to IckStream.

If, for example, I set it to normal (the lowest quality) via the Tidal web browser GUI, does IckStream stream at "normal" or at "HI FI" (given my sub is for hi-fi)

This question only relates to when I stream via my Slimdevices Transporter.

when you set the stream quality at Tidal that's what you will get from Tidal, so also through ickStream.
If you set Hi-Fi you get FLAC (when available at Tidal), and when you set normal you get mp3.

If you want to check you can set the ickStream logs to "debug" in the lms, settings, advanced, logging tab, play a stream from tidal and check the server logs in lms settings, information.
